Plane Happy Birthday

I had two birthday cards to make. One for a pilot and one for a guy who likes to fly remote controlled planes. So I used a digital stamp that I had and cut off one of the birthday messages to make it work for my design. The pilot lives where it is cold so I put snow on the mountains for his and left it off for the one that lives in Florida.

Digital Stamp: Airplanes @ Imagine That Digi Stamp
Metal Dies: Lawn Fawn (Stitched mountain borders, forest border), Joy Crafts (cloud)
Cardstock: Bazzill (Arctic, Hillary, Pinecone)
Ink: pre-colored digital stamp printed on Epson XP-440
Accents/Tools: EK Success 1/16 pop dots, scor-tape 1/16, 1/4

Fathers Day - airplane red

Fathers Day - Airplane

I wanted to try this design (see previous airplane birthday card) but with a new die I got. So I made Father’s Day and Happy Birthday banners so it could be used for either! I made it in red and blue. A lady ordered one for her dad and grandpa so I made different colors!

Happy Birthday Balloons

Happy Birthday Balloons v1

A lady sent me a photo of a card she liked and said she wanted something like that for her ex-DIL. Most of you know I’m not good at or do a lot of watercolors or distress inks (I did buy 3 but haven’t opened them!) So I went through my stash and found this cool prism looking paper that I got at an estate sell this year. I don’t have stamps so I did the sentiment on the computer. I wasn’t sure about the cords covering the words so I made a version 2. Also my balloons are smaller than the original but I think it worked out okay.

SUPPLIES:
Cardstock: Bazzill (Blue Oasis, Berry Sensation, White)
Patterned Paper: DCWV (Prism Play)
Accents/Tools: Braiding cord, Glue Dots, EK Success 1/16 pop dots, computer, Paper Smooches Dies (Balloons)

Happy Birthday Balloons v2

So I made a V2 with an embossed happy birthday paper so the strings wouldn’t be lying on the “wording” like in the first V1. I also grouped the strings together.
So I sent her both versions and she said  the loose balloon strings might drive her ex-DIL  crazy!!! Hehehehe. So a made a V3 just to make sure she got what she wanted.

So for V3 I went back to the original with the big Happy birthday (printed) on there. Instead of loose strings I tied them together. So I sent her all three so she could decide. She still picked #2!

Which version do you like?

Grandpa Gold in his heart

A lady requested this quote for her grandpa’s birthday. It was a good thing that my local scrapbook store found some very old BasicGrey papers in their storage room. They had one sheet of this so I picked it up along with some others. Good thing I did because it was perfect for this saying….at least I thought so!
I used Freshly Made Sketches 276 as my inspiration.

In April I made a “DAD” card for my FIL’s birthday.  (which I apparently forgot to post!)
Dad Birthday
I showed it to a lady and she said she wanted one for her dad’s birthday. Well I didn’t have the same paper so this is what I came up with…

I put the dad on the bottom right corner this time so I moved the stars up to the left corner. She loved it!

Christmas Tree with buttons

I had this image on my desk with buttons that I pulled for it earlier in the year but never made a card with it. I needed a card for a regular customer so I thought this image would work perfectly.

I used Freshly Made Sketches #268 for my inspiration.

Unicorn Birthday

Three different cards from one digital image

Birthday Flowers v1

I had a request for a birthday card for a lady that loves flowers and lives in Florida. I sent the customer some images and she liked Fred, She Said Designs – watercolor floral corner stamp.

So I found 2 cards and a sketch that inspired me so I decided to make all three and let her pick which one she wanted. Which also fit the Oct Inspirational Card Challenge – Bonus category which was to make at least 2 different cards with the same image….I made 3. I also used one of the sketches from Jillibean Soup’s Blog that they had posted for World Card Making Day. I didn’t use any Jillibean Soup product so I won’t enter it into the challenge but it still inspired my card!

*Note: this image was water colored by the artist and sold as a pre-colored digi! Which is great for us who can’t color well at all!!*

Out of the three cards she picked this one!

SUPPLIES:
Digital Image: Watercoloured Doodled Floral Corner with Butterflies @ Fred, She Said Designs.
Inks: PRE-COLORED digital image printed on Canon Inkjet printer.

Here is the 2nd card I made using the same digital image.  I used this card Yana Smakula’s blog for my inspiration. I don’t stamp so I printed and cut out the digital image and adhered it with the xyron 510.

*Note: this image was water colored by the artist and sold as a pre-colored digi! Which is great for us who can’t color well at all!!*
